    Hashimoto's disease confirmed, completely stunned.

    Well it's official, looks like Hashimoto's disease to me and I have scheduled a consult with Defy Medical on July 11th. I am having flashbacks to a few months after I had successfully weaned myself off Klonopin (July 5 2016) and had sought answers to many of my symptoms, other than feeling the effects of low testosterone, my ankles and feet felt as if I had soaked them in a bucket of ice for a prolonged period of time. My endo at the time told me it is common among type 2 diabetic to have cold feet and feeling cold in general who at the time only tested for TSH.

    I began TRT and the cold feet disappeared so I thought I was in the clear, the first 6 months of TRT made some progress learning that splitting up my shots from weekly to twice weekly gave me a more steady levels and felt better. I still felt minor swings, after 3-4 days I began to notice subtle changes in mood, mostly social avoidance and blue mood. Erections and libido were both still largely missing in action. So from everything I learned here I started 25mg EOD protocol, three and a half weeks into it all I noticed frequent erections and a strong libido.

    Two days after each injection long after reaching a stable state continuing for months I notice I felt absolutely terrible, on and off. I developed a chronic cough in Nov 2017 that is still with me even now 6 months later and haven't been able to shake it, during this time I have notice my throat feels like insects are scratching under my adams apple and figured it was from the dry cough. Now I realize all this time it was my immune system attacking my thyroid gland. Even strange my body temperatures are hitting 98.6, so you can see why I was caught completely off guard.

    The CVS minute clinic had noted rough, dry skin, high blood pressure (160/98), high heart rate (99 bpm), body temperature 98.7, 33% body fat. I do have some irritability on and off, oddly some days I have good energy and somes days I have horrible fatigue. I've read that 1/4 of people with Hashimoto's, it will simply go away and that normal thyroid function will return, it doesn't matter what they do, it will simply go away.

    I appreciate any and all feedback, thank you!
